Events Assistant Laura Feltham gives us a sneak peek into the delights in store at this year’s Craft Jam:
Craft Jam is returning to the Millennium Gallery for its second year this October. After last year’s hugely popular evening of craft and music we’re delighted to have some incredibly talented makers joining us for round two.
If you head to Millennium Gallery on the evening of the 9th of October you’ll find a hive of activity to rival Weston Park’s bees! This year we’re excited to be welcoming 15 of Sheffield’s most talented crafters to Craft Jam- you’ll be able to try your hand at felting, crochet, whittling, millinery, printing and much more.
Sheffield’s cycling and climbing fans are catered for too; why not hop on the Made by Scavenger Peddle Powered Sewing Machine to contribute to a collaborative piece made entirely from recycled climbing ropes. Or if print is your passion take a ride on the Peddle Powered Print Press created last year for the Tour De Yorkshire.
After all this hard work, you can treat yourself to a drink from our pay bar and settle down to have a listen to the brilliant Pons Aelius. Folk Forest are returning to curate the evening’s music and they have outdone themselves with this band.
Craft Jam is a true celebration of Sheffield and the North’s vast amount of creativity. Why not join us on the night and get your craft on?

Pedal Powered Printing Press, Made By Scavenger, Laura-Lou, Little Me Gallery, Janet Holgate, Papercraft Kate, Running with Scissors, Sarah Beth Knits, Nice Things by Adele, Imogen’s Imagination, Henks Woodwork, Home Coaching with Helen Moyes, Zoe Genders, Alison Pape, Jayne Gladden.
